Couldn't last forever...
The game started off looking interesting. I love the ping pong, back and forth offensive games, especially when the Sox starter getting bombed isn't someone in the season long plans. But the Red Sox stopped scoring and the Mariners...well, they didn't. Mark Bellhorn hit his first homer of the season. Here's hoping that's the start of a trend. I knew he hadn't hit a homer yet this yeaer, but when you actually hear it said outloud it just sounds that much more worse. Even he and Trot Nixon couldn't keep the Sox afloat for long. I'm about to head to bed after this post and the Sox are down 14-6.
I assume Cla Meredith's stint in the majors will be over when David Wells comes off the DL, which is supposed to be pretty soon. Meredith was hit hard for the third time in his three chances and I think, for now, he's run out of chances. It's past time to put this little expiriment to rest and let Meredith get in some work at AAA. The jump was far too much for him at such a young age.
Damon walks, Payton doubles with 1 out in the 8th. Maybe the Sox are making a comeback! I know I'm not waiting up for it.
